Pay It Forward Giveaway for August 2013
An amazing friend of mine had an idea. It's a simple idea really. The act of helping others because you've been helped yourself. So she gathered a bunch of us together and encouraged us to help out. Of course, I signed up. I've gotten a lot of help and support from my twitter and #writemotivation friends out there. I think it is our responsibility as a writing community, to help each other.
We're all on the road to whatever dream we have. Some are further than others, but it isn't a race. There is no prize for finishing first.
So, here is what I'm offering.
A TEN page in-depth critique of your Novel AND an in-depth critique of your Query.
UPDATE: IF YOU NOVEL IS NOT "READY" THAT'S FINE. I WILL STILL READ THE FIRST 10 PAGES AND GIVE FEEDBACK. IT WON'T BE AS IN-DEPTH AS FOR A FINISHED MS, BUT JUST SUGGESTIONS ON HOW TO IMPROVE AND MOVE FORWARD.
It's simple. The query gets your novel in the hands of an agent or editor. The first ten pages keeps them reading. It's not a guarantee of a sale, but it does make it easier.
So enter the giveaway, and maybe I can help.
This giveaway runs from today (August 1st) through August 3rd.
a Rafflecopter giveaway
'Till Next time.

"A lot of people have crazy exes. Not everybody has an ex whose brand of crazy involves unleashing forbidden magic that will destroy the city.
Yeah, I have terrible taste in women."
